ICC may grant extra reviews

The latest fiasco with the Decision Review System (DRS) in the Ashes has led the International Cricket Council (ICC) to re-think the increase the number of unsuccessful reviews awarded to a team per innings.

“DRS has always been a work in progress and it’s improving all the time. If we can improve the protocols with the way we use it, then I think we’ll be looking at it,” Dave Richardson, ICC chief executive, was quoted saying in the Sydney Morning Herald.

Even after all the bad name the DRS has earned in the Ashes series and the continuous opposition from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the ICC will not scrap the technology and will discuss all these issues in the upcoming meetings.

“Errors are always going to be made, DRS corrects most of them. We’ve got meetings coming up in September and October where it will probably be discussed on a more formal basis,” he said.
